Smoked Salmon & Horseradish Mascarpone in Wonton Cups

  • 24 square wonton skins
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp horseradish
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 oz. smoked salmon, cut into 24 equal pieces
  • Fresh dill springs

Smoked salmon in wonton cupsPreheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut about 1/2-inch off of two adjacent sides of each wonton wrapper to make a slightly smaller square. To make this process quicker, stack several wonton skins together at a time.

Spray a mini muffin tin lightly with cooking spray. Press one wonton skin in each muffin tin opening, slightly folding the skins in a couple of places to make them fit properly. Bake until crisp and golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the wonton cups from the tin (remember, they will be hot) and cool on a wire rack.

In a medium bowl, stir together mascarpone cheese, horseradish, fresh chopped dill, salt, and pepper.

Fill each cup with 1 teaspoon of the mascarpone mixture. Top with a piece of smoked salmon folded into a loose rose. Garnish with sprig of dill. Repeat with smoked salmon and dill.

Makes 24 hors d’oeuvres.
